Love Island receives 303 complaints to Ofcom over Samira's deleted scenes

Love Island fans wanna see Samira (Picture: ITV)

Love Island viewers have complained to Ofcom after it was revealed Samira Mightys scenes in the Hideaway had not been shown.

Samiras love interest Frankie Foster revealed that he and Samira spent the night in the Hideaway together.

However their intimate scenes never made it to air, yet other couples – such as Wes and Laura – have been shown going into the Hideaway.

The show previously said the footage was dropped due to time constraints, but viewers arent having it.

Ofcom has confirmed to Metro.co.uk that they have received 303 complaints relating to mis-treatment/unfair portrayal of Samira on Thursdays episode, which saw her leave the villa to pursue a relationship with Frankie.
